Additionally, many of the new introductions can be mixed and matched—broadening a customers’ ability to create their own pairings. The variety of these new products also offers flexibility in price points, to meet any budget.
“As our customer base continues to grow, and the demand for affordable outdoor furnishings gets more competitive, we decided to share our newest summer 2017 collections at January markets," said Luis Ruesga, Zuo Modern CEO. "The new weave patterns and colors highlight our in-house design team's trendsetting abilities. Plus, we have an entire collection of loungers that almost defy gravity, while still offering unbeatable durability and affordable luxury.”
Zuo, as an international brand, has grown and adapted to the outdoor furniture industry since launching its first collection of outdoor furniture in 2008.

“Over the last two years, Zuo began to shift its production in the outdoor category from a seasonal product offering to year-round distribution," said Zuo COO, Steve Poon. "This main shift can be attributed to growth in outdoor sales from each of our distribution centers throughout USA, Canada, Mexico, Columbia and Brazil—each with vastly diverse climates and clientele. This global view of the casual market place has shifted our product launches away from a seasonal market, to a year-round outdoor experience.”
